I want you around So If I die tonight I won't be alone So please be by my side So if the world should end We'll live for tonight I'll miss being young So let's live our youth While we still have some I want you around So If I die tonight I won't be alone Cuz You Know its for the better For us to be together So we can brave the weather. Side by side

There's little time to waste now The calender is at its end So lets get lost navigating fingerprints The end is getting nearer And everyone I know is here So no regrets, 2012 will be our year (chorus) Let's open a bottle and toast quetzalcoatl These passing days are precious in these Mayan times What better way to remind us to enjoy our lives The end is getting nearer and everyone I know is here No regrets, 2012 will be our year (chorus) Let's open a bottle and toast quetzalcoatl (bridge) The end is getting nearer 2012 will be our year The end is getting nearer 2012 will be our year

I've this song before But where or when I could not be sure It make me feel so old Like I've had a couple goes at this world (Chorus) Don't be fooled By your doubts Let it in, Let it Out What you give Comes around Let it in, Let it Out I've heard it all before They come in suits and knock on my door They tell me there's a toll If I don't pay then I won't meet my Lord. (Chorus) I've heard it all before I've heard this song before

Penelope 04:25
Oh Penelope Are you filled with air Swallowed oxygen That makes you float up? Is it dropsy? Will your lungs swell? It’s depressing me To see you struggle Oh Penelope Are you filled with air Swallowed oxygen That makes you float up? Is it dropsy? Will your lungs swell? It’s depressing me To see you struggle I’m treading water with my oars Glass galeons anchored, oceans floor I’m diving down with all my gear In search of treasure, para mi corazon Take you to the forest Let you feel the raindrops falling down Seeping through your redscales Eliminate the faucet Eliminate the need for water Replace it with a safe shell Don’t wanna see you floating upside down On the top of the bowl when I Come round to visit you Don’t wanna see you floating upside down No girl Need you there, Need you there, Need you there Ooh Release that air (I’m treading water with my oars Glass galeons anchored, oceans floor I’m diving down with all my gear In search of treasure, para mi corazon) Take you to the forest Let you feel the raindrops falling down Seeping through your redscales Eliminate the faucet Eliminate the need for water Replace it with a safe shell

Slackline 04:07
Walking tight ropes tied from tree to tree moving gently thinking I'm none the wiser for it Those below you on the ground are dull They may balance but they Disrupt the tether you walk on but (Chorus) If you slip I will be there to catch you I'll take care of it all If you can't find your footing I'll help you Make sure you won't fall They may mention that you're to reserved They don't understand that You're miles ahead of the curve Try to balance but they pull you down Stay above them but just Dip down to talk for a while but (Chorus) I Will help you, I won't let you fall. I you need me I'll help you, I won't let you fall Ohh I will be there to help you.

If everything you've ever believed Suddenly went out the door And the things you thought All were wrong Would you give up or fight to learn more (Chorus) When I bring home my barefoot Baby No one will recognize me Some people might call us crazy But I've got to stretch out my wings If everything that you've ever seen Was suddenely not what it seemed And all your dreams mean more than you think Would you give up or fight to be free (Chorus) When everything starts vanishing and our love is all that remains and the things you thought all were wrong would you give up or fight to be free (Chorus)

about

Oak Creek Nashville, Tennessee

Originally from Arizona but in Denver since 2009, The Oak Creek Band may be releasing its “debut” but it’s hardly a new project. The band compares themselves to ’70s soft rock bands, but truth be told, they’re more modern than they think. Simultaneously indie and folky, with poppy choruses, the band nails a very fun album, even in its most tear-provoking elements
